Welcome to today’s blog – A lovely tutorial using DSP images in card making
Hi and welcome to another Sunday Special episode, we are on number 7 of this series today – I didn’t manage to share a project with you last Sunday as I was exhausted following on from my sale-a-bration mini catalogue launch party (which was awesome). Today’s project is using DSP images in card making. You know those lovely part images that you find along the edge of your paper – well – don’t discard them, make use of them. Let me show you how.
I created this card to use up some of the imagery on the edging of a scrap piece of our tropical oasis DSP. It is far too pretty to discard. I then popped these up with mini dimensions for that added dimension.
I doubled this up with one 6×6 piece the lily impressions DSP and added a die cut sentiment from our well written dies using the same paper. I then used the remaining piece of lily DSP I had trimmed down to utilise as much of it as possible.
All of that with out basic black card stock and black rhinestone jewels….. Very pink 🙂 don’t forget our foam strips which are perfect for Polaroid style accents (the card on standing up, you cannot see the foam strips, it’s just my angle of photo).
The Polaroid shape I created from a piece of card stock measuring 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ and I die cut the largest square die out of my Stitched Shapes Die set. I placed it toward the top of the card stock.
Full tutorial available on YouTube via the link further down – live chat at 6 pm 🙂

For the sentiments I used the Sending You Thoughts stamp set which is a FREE item with a £45 spend.
I hope you like today’s project.

Instructions and Measurements:
Card Base and Layers
Card base is 4 1/8″ x 5 7/8″
DSP Matt Layer 3 7/8 x 5 5/8″
I like how we can make lovely cards using remaining cut of pieces of DSP used in previous projects.
I also die cut the sentiment from my Well Written Die set – from the same piece of DSP so that it all matches. The card had to be finished off with the black rhinestone jewels – love it! x Unfortunately the black jewels are retired but I’ve listed an alternative below – our sparkly rhinestone jewels will look just as lovely.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog today.
